There are so many things that we love in our lives. From appliances, food, clothing lines, you name it. Mitsubishi has become one of the most loved vehicles in our country.
According to Quickpic, over more than five decades, Mitsubishi has become a part of local culture and provides a brand that local buyers can identify with and aspire to.
Customers appreciated the core values of performance, quality, reliability and durability that the brand represents.
Mitsubishi Motors South Africa continues to deliver vehicles that are suited for work and play purposes.
The Pajero was introduced in September 2017 and updated models were released in 2019 and 2020 and is the most popular model of the brand. Unfortunately, the model has been discontinued.
As a tribute to the model, MMSA announced the availability of the special edition, Pajero Legend 100. There are only 100 units of the SUV and buyers will receive a certificate of membership to the Legend 100 Club.
Mitsubishi Pajero Sport:
Launched in 2020 and being the top 4×4 SUV, the model offers a 2.4L MIVEC turbodiesel. It is known as the older brother to the 2.4L MIVEC turbodiesel eight-speed A/T 4×2 and the 2.4L MIVEC turbodiesel eight-speed A/T 4×4.
The Pajero Sport offers seven seats, designed for off-road and on-road comfort. All models are powered by a 2.4L MIVEC turbodiesel four-cylinder intercooled engine, with 133 kW and 430 Nm of torque. It is mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission.
Recently, the model won an award in the large SUV/crossover category in the CAR Magazine annual top 12 Best Buys awards for 2021 and is proof of how popular and capable the Pajero Sport is.
The Triton is powered by Mitsubishi’s 2.4L MIVEC turbodiesel engine and is mated to either a six-speed automatic or six-speed manual gearbox.
There are four models in the line-up – two 4×2 models and two 4×4 models. All derivatives are double-cab.
The 4WD (four-wheel drive) models are fitted with Mitsubishi’s latest Super-Select II 4WD, which delivers optimum traction and handling characteristics for any surface and delivers impressive off-road performance too.
Launched in 2011, the ASX uses the latest Mitsubishi 2.0L MIVEC engine that delivers a total output of 110 kW with 197 Nm of torque. There are two transmission options available, a five-speed manual and a six-step CVT for performance and efficiency.
Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross:
The Eclipse Cross made its debut in 2019 and initially was only available in a 2.0-litre and later a 1 499cc was added to the line-up. The Eclipse Cross was the first vehicle to get the new 1.5-litre four-cylinder turbo engine.
The new derivative delivers 110 kW with 250 Nm of torque. The four-cylinder engine is slightly smaller and is mated to an automatic CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission) with sport mode for fuel efficiency and turbo-charged for performance.
But what is coming soon?
The Mitsubishi Outlander 2022 model has many excited.
“Full pricing and packaging will only be made available once we have details of its arrival in SA,” enthuses Campbell. “Needless to say we are extremely excited about the future design direction the all-new Outlander will give our customers.”
Another model called the Xpander Cross will be making its debut. It will be SUV styled, comfortable, practical and will have a versatile interior design.
Mitsubishi’s expectations for both is that it will reaffirm the status of the manufacturer as a frontrunner, identifying customer demands.
